What family names have you used or plan on using?
I'm planning on using these:
Rhea - Grandmothers first name
Gloria - Grandmothers middle name
Beatrice - Great Grandmothers first name
I also plan on naming a daughter Madeleine to honor my step grandmother Mattye. I didn't know this until I spoke to my grandmother, but Rosemary would be an unintentional honor to a Rose and Molly.
What about you?

I've used two so far.
Bea "bee" is to honor my Grandmother Grace Beatrice (she said her name like bee-trice not Be-uh-trice)
Anna is to honor my mom Roberta Ann, my MIL Ann, and my husbands Grandma Anna.
If we have a boy he will named Scott Allen. Scott my husbands late fathers first name. Allen is a family name on both sides. So is Thomas and we might double barrel the middle name. Scott Allen Thomas.
I'd have loved to use Grace but it is my middle name, and my nieces name.
We've considered variations of Marion and Louise too for middle names. Marion is my other Grandmas name and Louise is my MIL middle name and Grandma Marion's middle name.
I have a great aunt named Mabel, I wanted to use it as a first name but my hubby said no. :-(Happily Married Momma to two Sweet Girls & Expecting AgainEllie Bea 06/14/06~Anna Rose 05/16/13Due December 12th, 2014

I didn't know it until after I named my son Konrad, but Conrad was my husband's great grandmother's maiden name. His middle name is DH's middle name.
Some of my favorite girls names can be found on my family tree. I didn't know the people that had them but, I still consider them "family names." Wilhelmina (my great great grandmother), Frieda (Great great aunt) and Hilda (DH's great great aunt). Also, it's not really a family name, per se, but I love the name Louisa because it's the name of the street I grew up on and my parents still live. Myself, my mom and all of her sisters have the middle name of Marie, so that will definitely be in there somewhere for a girl.
For boys, we're considering family names for middles. Joseph, Frederick, John, Francis and James have all been used several times throughout my family tree.
I really like Rhea, by the way!Mommy to Konrad Wolfgang 12/31/13
I've already got that naming fever again...
